This Saturday, May 9, Boston University is hosting an international conference called The Future of Food: Transatlantic Perspectives, which is free and open to the public. They have five sessions scheduled with a host of international speakers to discuss the sustainability of our current food system, including a closer look at the global food chain, geopolitics, food safety, climate change, and the ethics of eating. Speakers include Sandor Ellix Katz, author of Wild Fermentation; Mark Winne, author of Closing the Food Gap: Resetting the Table in the Land of Plenty; and Michael Ableman, farmer and author of Fields of Plenty. Did I mention it’s free? And open to the public? (There are also some other events this Friday, but those have limited seating and may be full—you’d have to check.)
The schedule is here. Go if you can.
